Prostate Scotland, in association with The Urology Foundation, is seeking to make up to two awards for “The Prostate Scotland Scottish Prostatic Robotic Fellowship.  Worth £10,000 each, this funding would provide additional support for Robotic Surgery Fellows to undertake training, travel to conferences, take part in research and to publish research and/or outcomes data.

Prostate Scotland has recently completed a successful appeal to help the introduction of robot assisted prostate cancer surgery in the east and west of Scotland, raising nearly £3m to support robotic surgery programmes and the introduction of robots in the east and west of Scotland.

Prostate Scotland has also been taking forward a programme to help support the training of urologists in Scotland in robotic assisted prostate cancer surgery. As part of this Prostate Scotland is pleased to launch this new Scottish Fellowship and Clinical Visits Awards Programme which is aimed at increasing the number of urologists in Scotland trained in robotic assisted prostate cancer surgery. Prostate Scotland is working in association with The Urology Foundation on this project.

An award of £1750 for a Clinical Visit to an institution to learn about and experience and observe robotic assisted prostate surgery in another institution is available for trainees in Scotland. The visits would be to institutions approved by TUF or EAU located in the UK and Europe.

Applications are sought from trainees/ urologists working in Scotland or moving to work in Scotland wishing to undertake a prostate robotic fellowship as a joint application with a recognised robotic centre within the UK or Europe.
